What you'll do
We will start in our driveway located walking distance to most of these hikes. We will gear up accordingly to the weather and make sure everyone has everything they will need. All hikes will approximately take 2-3 hours from start to finish. Walking up the mountains of Knockalla you will experience breath taking views of the sea and rolling hills. Once we get to the top of the mountain Lauren will take your photo to have as a memory of the hike. You can opt to have 3 photos taken of yourself on the hike. The walk down is moderately steep but very safe as well. You will not leave feeling disappointed. This hike has outstanding points of natural beauty. We are both very excited to show you what we get to see everyday. After the hike we will come back to our home and have sandwiches, snacks, and non alcoholic drinks prepared for you by the professional chef himself Dessie. If you see any dates that are not listed feel free to message us and we will do our best to make the date available.
